In addition to having fascinating talks and engaging workshops, the INSIGHT conference will feature an Exploratorium with Visual and Auditative Art to touch all our senses and to remind us of the importance of experience. The art exhibited ranges from paintings to videos and installations, representing a mix of already established artists and up-and-coming young talent. The interface of art and science will further be explored in a collection of aesthetically pleasing yet informative visualisations of scientific data. The music will range from a piano concert to DJs providing an appropriate atmosphere underlying the social event.
The Exploratorium will consist of different ways to explore non-ordinary mental states via stroboscopic lights and virtual reality illusions.
The Art and Music Space was developed in collaboration with artists and researchers from EDGE – Blurring the borders between art and science e.V.; the Berlin University of Arts (UdK); the Berlin School of Mind and Brain (Humboldt University) and the University of Saarbrücken. As well, a number of independent artists contributed their time and energy to the space.
